Where and when are you finding queen ants? A section to share nuptial flight schedules by ant species and locality

Okay so I was wondering around looking for tetramorium ceaspitum queens and in the process I came across Rubra colony having a field day gathering males and female alates of the ever abundant lasius nigers.

I am so excited because even tho it is the first time seeing these guys in the flesh. I am not worried because not all queens fly off and some mate at the nest with males from other nests.

However I do not know much on their flight times. What times have always been a winner for catching these guys. Morning or evening?
Officially caring for 4 Lasius colonies :D :D :D

Founding stage:
11x Lasius Niger
1x Myrmica Rubra
1x Myrmica ??
